This image is called "A Bird In My Hair".  She totally makes me think of the movie My Fair Lady.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut her out.  I colored her with chalk (hair, bird, eggs, nest, dress, shawl), ink (skin) and some glitter gel pen (eyes and lips).  I added some Crystal Stickles to her dress and a little on the bird in her hair.  I added some Glossy Accents on her eyes to make them pop.  My final touch was the gem in her ear for her earring.

  I used a pre-cut card pack that was given to me over at Craft Warehouse in Meridian, Idaho when I took a class there.  So, the paper, doily, sequins floss and the gold flourish were all in that packet.  The banner on top was from a Chalk Studio 2 Chipboard Elements set.  The ceramic bird is from a fun little packet of birds I got with the toy house stuff (where they have all the little people, wooden houses, and accessories).  I used Pop Dots to place the image onto the card and Glossy Accents to place the bird on the card.

Thanks for looking!
